will never support a leader in my party in the u.s. senate who would work to overturn roe vs. wade. if when that mcmahon is elected to the senate, no matter what the issue is, she will be empowering a senate majority leader and chairman of the judiciary committee will stop at nothing to erode women's health care. that's a big issue in this campaign. >> it is a myth to think that would be against women's health issues. i am a woman. clearly, i'm going to continue to support access to contraception, mammograms, pap smears, all of them as i did as the ceo of a company that provided all those health benefits to its employees. i absolutely will not do anything that would impact women's health care issues. relative to a supreme court justice, i would hope there would not be a litmus test for president romney when he is supporting -- when he is so -- when he is presenting candidates for the supreme court. supreme court justices decide many issues. while i might not agree on each and everyone, i would want to bet that supreme court justice and judge the best justice for all their beliefs and all of
. >> reporter: quazi mohammad nafis came to the u.s. from bangledesh on a student visa to study at southeast missouri state university. he caught the f.b.i.'s attention allegedly in an extremist online chat room trying to form a terror cell. agents posing as al qaeda facilitators arranged a meeting with nafis, in which he allegedly laid out his plan to attack new york city. an f.b.i. affidavit alleges that nafis helped building a 1,000-pound bomb in a long island warehouse. in audio and videotaped conversations with an f.b.i. informant, nafis allegedly said he wanted to "destroy america" on behalf of al qaeda. according to the f.b.i., while planning the bombing, nafis told an undercover agent, "what i really mean is that i don't want something that's, like, small. i just want something big, something very big." this morning, the 21-year-old allegedly drove a van he believed carried the bomb downtown and parked it in front of the federal reserve bank of new york. nafis walked a short distance to this hotel, where the f.b.i. says he then recorded a video claiming responsibility for the attack.
reportedly been killed in a u.s. military attack in afghanistan. afghan president karzai disclosed the attack on tuesday, saying the victims died after it ended caught in the middle of a firefight between u.s. forces and taliban militants while tending to livestock in the eastern province. in syria, international mediator lakhdar brahimi is claiming the syrian government has agreed to a brief ceasefire during the muslim holiday. brahimi also says the majority of rebel groups have also pledged to abide by the truce. the syrian government has yet to confirm whether it will take part, saying a final decision will come on thursday. israel has launched air strikes in the gaza strip for the second consecutive day. a palestinian militant was killed today, one day after three palestinians died in another israeli attack. palestinian fighters have launched rockets across the gaza border into israel, seriously wounding two immigrant farmworkers from thailand. the thousands of people surrounded the spanish parliament in madrid on tuesday in the latest round of protests against austerity cuts targeting pu
, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on t
